Acupuncture has also been shown to be effective in Chronic sinusitis, Bronchial Asthma, Chronic bronchitis, and COPD.
While it is not fully understood how acupuncture improves breathing, research suggests that acupuncture treatments may help to relax muscles involved in breathing. Acupuncture has been shown to release chemicals that dilate the airways, making it easier to breathe.
It is reported that acupuncture may help relieve COPD by reducing bronchial immune-mediated inflammation and by promoting the release of vascular and immunomodulatory factors. A recent systematic review of randomized controlled trials of acupuncture therapies for treating COPD found that acupuncture therapies may result in clinically important improvements in quality of life and breathlessness.

Best Acupuncture Clinic!
Wondering if acupuncture is worth the money? Don’t think twice! I had a serious neck and shoulder problem after several unfortunate incidents. I’ve tried painkillers, physiotherapy, ultrasounds, but nothing really worked. Not to mention I couldn’t sleep and had to stop my activity completely. From the beginning of this year, I have been seen by Dr. Hans Mathew several times. First, he described each step and the benefits of the treatment and made sure I’m comfortable. Being a little nervous around the needles, I found it very reassuring. Next, we’ve started a 10-session treatment that lasted over 2 months. I’ve heard that medical acupuncture really works, but I certainly didn’t expect such a significant effect – my issues started improving almost immediately. Now I see Dr. Hans once a month to still benefit from the electro-acupuncture that works for me as stress relief. I can’t recommend Dr. Hans Mathew enough; he’s highly qualified and fully patient-focused!
